This event has now passed.
This series of new writing honours and celebrates history’s forgotten women. As we can’t gather on site, we are bringing the candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse to you, with three filmed monologues from ground-breaking playwrights Nicôle Lecky, Winsome Pinnock and Amanda Wilkin.
Original, funny and revealing, the stories focus on three women who were catalysts of change: Mary Kenner, the American inventor of the sanitary belt; Una Marson, the Jamaican feminist, activist and writer who was the first black woman to be employed by the BBC and Bessie Coleman, the civil aviator who was the first woman of African-American and Native-American descent to hold a pilot license.
Content guidance: Please note that Una Calling by Winsome Pinnock (performed by Sarah Niles) has strong language including swear words and racial slurs. Thanks for Thinking of us, Mary by Nicôle Lecky (performed by Jade Anouka) includes swear words.
